Ain’t no mother that can tell the story of Stagger Lee like Lloyd Price. (With the exception of Nick Cave)

I'll have to research that song again, but it seems to have been written in the 19th century and called "Stag O'Lee." And the person sung about was Stack Lee, called "Stack" because of the tall Stetson hat he wore.

Wikipedia has a short, presumably accurate, article.

How about a love triangle turned double-homicide? Nice story telling and some pretty good instrumental work too.
